RAYMUND FAMILY Sunday School

"In a time in history when so much exists only in cyberspace, and so much of our time is spent in the pursuit of academic and career-related pursuits, Temple Beth-El's Raymund Family Sunday School is our place to cultivate joy, peace, connection, and meaning. It is where you and your family can go to get more out of life, grounded in the same values that guided our ancestors through hardship and change. But, we will do that in a new way that supports the next generation's right to carve out their own niche of spiritual exploration. Together, this year, we are set up to hold space for evolution; honoring the magic that happens between "no longer and not yet" [Nancy Levin}." 

- Sarah Grace Nadler, Director of Innovative Programing

 

Our open door policy continues into our Sunday School program. We welcome any new families who want to try out our program for one year without committing to joining Temple Beth-El. So bring a friend!

Lifelong Learning - Adult education

No matter where you are in your life’s journey, at Temple Beth-El we know that we always have so much more we want to know.  Our Continuing Adult Education programs are for anyone from 21 to 101!  So, if you fall within this age range, we’ll probably have a program for you. Or, we’d be glad to create something to meet your interests. 

Want to be part of “The Journey”? We welcome every one of your ideas!

  • If you’d like to teach a class, either a one-off or a series, we’ll try to make it happen.
  • And, if you want to study something we’re not yet offering, we’ll try to make that happen as well.
  • And, if you’d like to volunteer to help put our programming together, we’d love to have you join our new Continuing Adult Education Team, chaired by Marjorie Friedman.

TORAH STUDY - Saturday mornings, 10am to 11:30am

We study the weekly Torah portion during our Shabbat Morning Service. The study is interactive & lively and all are urged to participate & share their views of how our sacred text still speaks to us in the 21st century. Torah study is usually the lengthier part of the morning experience on Shabbat without a Bar/Bat Mitzvah.

 

other adult community learning opportunities

S.A.G.E., Rabbi & Reverend, Boomers Here & Now and Women's Spirituality are just a few of the other opportunities we have for you to continue learning and growing in knowledge and friendships. For more information on these programs, GO HERE.
